typewriter art – first attempt

No where near the great artist Keira Rathbone. lol!

A rush job but fun! I’ll attempt a more serious theme next- perhaps a dragon? 🙂

retrolicious orange

my first orange tappy! an olympia traveller de -luxe.

yes, my heart skipped a beat! never mind that  i couldnt roll the platen, never mind she was dirty, never mind her type guide was broken, i would rescue her, find a ‘doctor’ and get her fixed.

i did. after a professional tender loving care, repairing and servicing, here she is.

‘doctor’ said that those issues/problems mentioned earlier were small problems and could be fixed easily. he added olympia is a reliable brand and this typewriter is worth saving and keeping. sweet!


one script or cursive, please!

i am on a blogging marathon here, 3 posts consecutively in a night! i would love to do a typecast but think it may not be a good idea at midnight. i will update most post with corresponding typecast later. so come visit again! 🙂

i literally went bananas, mad, looking for the ‘CURSIVE’ one. i finally bought one from a collector who are letting this go most probably because she scored another one in better cosmetic condition. not that i mind.

meet olympia sf with cursive typeface. most collectors i came across here lovingly named their tappies but i just couldnt associate any of them with a name… hmm.. dont know why. i like to personalise it though. here, i pasted paper lace on the tappy.

the serial nos is under the carriage. this olympia is made in 1967.
